D.I.M.M.a new single from Washington Heights, NY rhyme duo Pearl Gates and Syll
Taken from the forthcoming second installment of their Play This series, the track is laced with acoustic guitar strums, swells of keys and vocal loops. Over this backdrop the emcees speak truth or as Pearl Gates summarizes
D.I.M.M is an acronym for Diamonds In My Mind. The inspiration: this is a song about outside forces trying to sabotage your innermost thoughts. Trying to steer clear of being controlled by external pressures so that you can continue to find and be guided by your inner voice.”
Play This 2, the full-length will drop via Below System Records (Masta Ace, JR & PH7) digitally on Feb 28th (with CD version dropping in late March) and is the follow up to the first EP installment (which dropped back in 2016).
Play This the EP’s narrative was introducing the listener to their hood from the heights to the dark underbelly. Being that Gates has been on several international tours following the first EP and Syll has been making moves as a songwriter for other artists, their worldview has grown since and is reflected on this album.
